It’s widely known that Belltown turns into an absolute drunken Ultra Violence scene from Clockwork Orange after 2am. Nearly every shooting, mugging, bludgeoning, and assault takes place after the neighborhood’s clubs herd their drunken patrons onto the street. Neighbors are rightly concerned at the apparent inability of the police department to cope with such a serious onslaught of drunken hooligans. Honestly, it’s a situation that’s out of control. SPD would need to employ a team in riot gear to manage the chaos. Do you have a solution you’d like to voice?
If you’re concerned – Seattle Times has tipped us off that there’s an upcoming safety forum.
Residents of the downtown Seattle Belltown neighborhood are holding a safety forum with police Tuesday night to respond to crime in the area.
One man was wounded in the neck in a drive-by shooting early Sunday as he left a nightclub. Police stopped a car and arrested two suspects.
Another man was beaten unconscious early Sunday by four men making catcalls at his girlfriend.
The group Belltown Citizens on Patrol scheduled the safety forum at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Labor Temple. The group recruits volunteers for walks in the neighborhood.
